Two very engaging children play the pivotal roles
19 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

A story of sentiment in which two very engaging children play the pivotal roles. It deals with air employer and his workman, crippled by accident in the course of his duties. In the first scene we find the poor man and his family (Edwin Boring, Violet Horner and Mimi St. John, their child). The accident is extremely well suggested and gives a marked sense of danger. Matt Snyder plays the hard employer a bit too conventionally to give the best impression, for, it is good business to fool people, especially if one is going to be unjust to them. The two children, Edith Halleran and Mimi, furnish, as was intended, the best part of the offering. That jury had been bribed; it was fairly "licking its chops." The photography is good. A creditable, not a great, picture. - The Moving Picture World, March 29, 1913
